The intent of the psychology program is to provide a comprehensive plan of study that will introduce you to many subfields of psychology and prepare you for a number of human services careers and graduate programs. Although graduate degrees are required to pursue licensure as a psychologist, counselor, or social worker, Waldorf University psychology majors should be prepared to enter these degree programs upon graduation. Through graduate studies, students may choose to specialize in areas including clinical, experimental, developmental, social, cognitive, human factors, sports, industrial/organizational, health, and forensics.
